'People with beards'
Tami Hoffman Esq
Head of Sky News
8th October 2002
We have received a letter from a British Muslim who was watching Sky News at 10.15pm on September 11th 2002. The letter states that two commentators were discussing the Sept 11 tragedy when the following (paraphrased) exchange took place live on Sky TV:
"Would you not feel jittery or uneasy if you saw a group of people with beards." "Peoples minds are susceptible to whatever is said to them by the evil men in mosques."
Could you please supply us with a videotape of this alleged incident so we can assess whether there are any grounds for complaint. Also, we would be grateful to hear your comments on this alleged incident.
Mr Inayat Bunglawala
